Entering Jail - What to Expect

The following information is designed to provide inmates with a brief overview of what to expect upon arrival and during their stay at the Snohomish County Jail. While this information is not all-inclusive, it is hoped that it will help to make transition to the jail environment as smooth as possible. Snohomish County Corrections is committed to providing a humane, safe and secure detention facility. It is our goal to provide a structured environment that allows inmates to satisfy their obligation to the Court. Inmate cooperation is important to achieve that goal.
